The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority is undergoing assessment through the Tax Administration Diagnostic Assessment Tool (TADAT), and has appointed nine teams to work on the nine Performance Outcome Areas (POAs).

The Authority has so far trained most of its managers and is in the process of training all staff members to facilitate a shared view of where the Authority is going.
